Tiny retailers get started in indoor flea market

The indoor flea market in Napanoch is home to 100 little retailers. Low overhead helps groundfloor entrepreneurs sell groceries, chocolates, meat and cheese, sports collectibles, fresh baked goods, tools, new and used furniture, and clothing. There's even jewelry repair while you wait. About half the merchandise offered there is new. Many of the sellers are retired or have other jobs during the week.

The "public market" has always been a worthwhile concept. Grouping lots of tiny retail businesses in one low-overhead place draws crowds of shopper and helps new businesses get started.
